PAGE 58 Vampire control expected Anti-coagulan destroys bats WASHINGTON (UP!) _ . - U.S. biologists, after years of study, think they have come up with a good way to control / Vampires, those little bats that feed on blood sucked from animals -- and so' ne- times people. The contro! weapon is an * anti-coagulant that causes the vampire to die from massive hemorrhaging. The vampire bat, found in an area from northern Argentina up to Mexico, at times may feed on livestock, turkeys and even humans. About the size of a blackbird, it is t.he only mammal known to have a diet of blood alone. The vampire sets down quietly at night on its sleeping prey and makes two cuts with razor-sharp teeth in the skin around the neck, tail or feet. Then it laps up blood from the wound and flies off, leaving , the victim still bleeding and susceptible to rabies or other viruses. It causes an estimated $250 million damage a year to livestock in Latin America, killing up to a million cattle, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service whose biologists studied the pest. Last year more than 100 people -- mostly children bitten on the toes while sleeping . -- suffered vampire bites in Granada, Nicaragua, after an earthquake apparently disrupted the bats' regular roosting habits. Very rarely, a human will die from rabies transmitted by a bite. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists have been working on vampire contro) in several Latin American countries for the past six years with $800,000 in funds provided by the Agency for I n t e r n a t i o n a l Development. After field and laboratory tests, they found a harmless injection of an anti-coagulant called diphenadione into cattle will stop 90 to 95 per cent of vampire bat attacks. The bats, which already have an anti-coagulant present in their saliva, die of internal hemorrhaging within three days after they bite a treated animal. Another method'is to smear a mixture of the anti-coagulant and Vaseline on vampires caught in nets and then send them back to their roost. As the bats preen each other like monkeys, each vampire smeared can cause the death of 20 to 30 others. An Interior Department spokesman said biologists think the new methods are especially good since they can be used selectively -- to con- tro] bat populations that attack livestock without endangering other vampires that feed on animals in the wild without coming into conflict with man. Olympic ads hit legal wall S A C R A M E N T O , C a l i f . (UPI) -- Makers of products advertised as "selected for use by the U.S. Olympic team" could be prosecuted in California for misleading advertising . and unfair competition, a . state official says. Consumer Affairs Director Taketusu Takei said no comparison testing is done on such an advertised product but the slogan implies the item is superior to similar ones. He said manufacturers are allowed to use the slogan in advertisements if they contribute the product and a minimum of $35,000 to the Olympic fund. In a letter to the U.S. Olympic committee, Takei said manufacturers involved in such advertising "could face prosecution in California for acts of unfair competition and misleading advertising." To prevent consumers from being misled, he recommended the slogan be changed to show clearly that a contribution was involved. He suggest. ed advertisers be limited to a choice of such slogans as "support your U.S. Olympic team" or "contributor 10 the U.S. Olympic team."
